Beyond Our Kennel by John Hegley

Beyond Our Kennel

John Hegley

Comedy's poet laureate will cure anybody's poetry phobias with this funny collection. Laugh at life in a Luton bungalow, chuckle at the poet's juvenile pain or enter the tardis-kennel to experience life beyond our ken.


Those four made us glad to be alive.
They made the five of us feel fab.
They were one of the three things
our family could appreciate together.
The other two were sleep
and oxygen.

from The Beatles in our Luton Bungalow
